Technical Overview

Site Equipment:
• Existing AC system – Comprising of a Daikin heat recovery system, was installed in the late 1990s.
• Refrigerant – Existing system was operating using R22 refrigerant which is being phased out under EU regulations.
• Proposed AC system – A 33.5kW cooling capacity VRVIII heat recovery system was installed with ten indoor, slim-line, ceiling concealed, ducted units. This top of the range system allows for simultaneous heating and cooling in all areas.
• Controls – A centralised intelligent controller was installed capable of controlling both the new and old system thus providing MLB with an easy to use interface for the AC system.
• Future proofing – The centralised controller can decipher how much energy each indoor unit is using and so it is possible to separate the billing out per floor for the AC system for billing purposes. Allowing the building to function as a multi tenanted facility in the future.


• Project delivered by Frontline – On time and on budget.
• Provision was left for the future expansion of the system should it be required.
• Greater levels of control using a centralised controller.
• A phase-out plan and financial model for the existing AC units that work for
